Hokule'a East Coast Voyage

on Thu, 06/09/2016 - 22:35

Alright folks, here it is as the Hokule'a Crew arrives on the shores of Martha's Vineyard June 28, 2016. Three great days to start off the town's festivities with greetings from the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe Massachusetts

How cool is that as teachers in Edgartown, Massachusetts encouraged their students to create an art project map involving tracking status of the Hokule'a voyage on the East Coast.
As a matter of fact the Hokule'a voyage crew will be arriving on the shores of Martha's Vineyard late June/early July.
I hear some ukulele strummers and the communities close by, will welcome the HAWAIIANS with open arms.
I think I need to show up for this meet and greet if at all possible as I LOVE THE EAST COAST~aloha lives there too!

A great story created by Jack London, directed by Gary Kubota, Monte Scott Perez and actor Moronai Kanekoa. It was heartwarming, touching and brilliant!
True story of hawaiian cowboy Kaluaiko'olau and his right to protect his family against political outlaws while facing his son's leprosy ailment and eventually his own fate.
Moronai was spectacular as a one man act and to top it off, he's HAWAIIAN! Pretty rare these days to have a actor perform his actual cultural stories.  Mahalo piha Gary, Monte and ONIPAA.org for this well shared brave performance.
